MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) – Moscow’s international airport Sheremetyevo plans to build a new passenger terminal capable of serving more than ten million passengers a year that will supersede the existing terminal B, the airport’s director general Mikhail Vasilenko, told journalists on Tuesday.
Apart from that, the airport plans to build a tunnel linking the northern and southern zones.
According to Vasilenko, terminal B will not be necessarily demolished, it might be profoundly overhauled. The overall sum of the terminal and tunnel project is estimated at 350-370 million U.S. dollars, of which some 200 million U.S. dollars will go to finance the construction of the terminal.
The construction of the tunnel will be funded from both state budget and private sources. The airport’s administration is currently in talks with potential investors.
The Sheremetyevo airport is Russia’s second international airport in terms of passenger traffic. Flights from the airport are performed to more than 200 destinations. The airport’s handling capacity is 35 million passengers. In 2012, the airport serviced 26.188 million passengers.
